    On this 9-track EP, Cypress Hill pack a party bowl and invite some friends over to sample the herb and tinker with tunes from all of their albums. Lauryn Hill of Fugees, Erick Sermon and Redman are among those who assist on the mic, lending a fresh sound to familiar tracks. The beats are sativa-heavy with haunted orchestrations: sweet strings, fuzzed jazz (trumpets, saxes) and droning keyboards. A stoner paranoia permeates the previously-unreleased "Whatta You Know" and the Tribe Called Quest remix of "Illusions." "Hits From The Bong" percolates through a slow, deliberate haze. "Latin Lingo" features a chorus of wailing, Sonic Youthful guitars. The rough-hewn vocals of B-Real and company, though, still loom as large and boomy as ever.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (8/23-8/30/96, p.123) - "...The airy, stripped-down arrangements, which hint at the beautifully spacey grooves of trip-hop, soften the claustrophobic belligerence of the original recordings..."
    - Rating: B+
    Alternative Press (2/97, pp.58-59) - 4 (out of 5) - "...every [Cypress Hill] release has its share of phat, juicy nuggets. UNRELEASED AND REVAMPED is no different..."
    NME (Magazine) (8/24/96, p.52) - 7 (out of 10) - "...Dripping with Lauryn Hill's honey-buttered vocals, the Fugees' mix could've been the stand out track...but it's not...that accolade goes to DJ Muggs with `Hand On The Pump'; he's back on the decks and it's quintessential Cypress Hill....cartoon crazy..."
